Default What recalls or warranty issues for a 1999 V92C

I have my bike that is a 99 and only has 250 miles on it at the dealer and I asked them to perform any recalls or warranty issues to it while they have it.

There telling me that there is none and they don't have to since the bike is a 99.

Now I know the bike has never been to the dealer since new, so there has to be some items they are obligated to repair if there is a recall or warranty issue.

Any help would be great.

Unfortunately, recalls are offered to be performed within a stated time window. It is up to the owner to take advantage of the recall during that window as the manufacturer cannot force the owner to take the bike in for the recall. This is too late in your case, but for those who read this in the future, remember to always check that all recalls have been performed before you buy a used bike/car.

Sandring, see this thread here for more info: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=3854.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

If it's an actual victory dealer, they can run the vin number, and that's about it. I have to say that I doubt that it only has 250 miles on it... the mileage can never be trusted on the early models.

The bike has been in the family since purchased new, I just got sick of it sitting in storage so I bought it for 3K.

So ya its a brand new bike that has 256 miles on it.

It has a serial number on the bar clamp and and its the blue and black color so not sure if it makes it a special bike or not.

I'll wager the fluids have never been changed. I urge you to do that and be sure to change out the forks and the shock, if its doable. Its wise to change fluids every two years as they lose viscosity and are hygroscopic, that is, they absorb moisture, even out of the air.

Default Recalls

There where A lot of recalls on this bike. when i went to the dealer
on mine they where able to give me recall info when i provided my
VIN. Some of the recalls where Fuel Pump, Speed o ,Rear drive pulley,
electric with rear tail light and speed sensor. That's not all of them
but most. all the recalls don't apply to all the bikes made that year,
i think they went by VIN number. I think when a recall is sent out
it's good for ten years. I got several recalls on my Truck and car over
ten years. At this point i don't think they will honor any recalls on your
bike unless they where issued in 2012 or 13 I would do like the other
member said and go through the bike and check everything and change
the fluids and most important, check your tires for dry rot. If possible
post some pictures of your bike. Good Luck

I am getting it back and selling it, I already have a Ultra Classic and a XL1200 so no need to have a bike that is going to have issues in the future.


I should not have a issue selling it, it looks just like it did the day he bought it in 99.
